Film Screening: Half the Sky
Join KQED and San Jose State University for a film screening of Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide. Inspired by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn's book, the documentary series introduces women and girls who are living under some of the most difficult circumstances imaginable -- and fighting bravely to change them. Traveling with intrepid reporter Nicholas Kristof and A-list celebrity advocates America Ferrera, Diane Lane, Eva Mendes, Meg Ryan, Gabrielle Union and Olivia Wilde, the film reflects viable and sustainable options for empowerment and offers an actionable blueprint for transformation. Located in the Engineering Building, Room 189. RSVP at halftheskysjsu.eventbrite.com.
